I Just Wanna’ Laugh!

office_walking_ew-769873My favorite TV show seems to have an identity crisis. It seems the writers of “The Office” want to make the show into some kind of drama.

Last night’s episode had numerous examples of awkward moments for me. The pinnacle of which was Pam sobbing on a bench due to the inner turmoil from her decision to be in NYC.

What’s next? An alcoholic intervention for Meredith? Maybe the writers of LOST could come in and write some war-time flashbacks for Creed? (Wait… that could actually be a funny parody.)

I know things have to be mixed up a bit, but I’m just asking to keep more of the classic stuff around. Put Michael in front of a crowd making a fool of himself. Give me more of Dwight and Jim’s shenanigans. I miss Stanley’s one liners. When I watch “The Office”, I just wanna’ laugh!

Am I the only one who feels this way? Do you desire an emotional attachment to the characters? Let me hear from you!

Standing in History

I’ve often thought about various historic moments in our nation’s history and wondered where I would have stood.

For instance, if I would have lived during the moment, would I have had the clarity to support the Declaration of Independence? Would I have understood the significance of the Emancipation Proclamation and applauded Abraham Lincoln when he signed it? Would I have had the courage to champion women in their fight for their right to vote? Would I have stood with Martin Luther King and believed in his audacious, awe-inspiring dream?

Today I find myself living in such a moment, but with mixed emotions.

I vehemently differ with Barak Obama on some pivotal issues. I can not understate that I find it impossible to support some of his ideals.

That being said, it is difficult to overstate the historic nature of this moment. In a few short months we will have our first African American President. A man who came from meager beginnings, worked hard, got a solid education, and has now been elected to the highest office in our land.

Today I stand in history. As I stand, I celebrate that Obama’s victory represents an abandonment of errors and sin from our nation’s past. Today I’m thankful to live in this great country where these kind of things can happen!
